"Boabeng-Fiema, where the sacred monkies live" Fiema by Pieter11

Fiema Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 15 photos

Very close to Nkoranza, in the Brong Ahafo Region in central Ghana, you will find the very extraordinairy villages Fiema and Boabeng. The inhabitants of these villages believe that the monkies that live in the forests around their houses, are the reincarnations of their ancestors.

Because they believe this, they treat these monkies as they would treat their own family. They feed them, they protect them and they even bury them at a special cemetary.

At the villages you can visit the forest where these monkies live, and get very close to them. You can also visit the cemetary where they are buried and besides these monkies the forest has a lot more beautiful things that are worth a long walk through the great environment here.

    Nice tips - the taxi one is helpful. The colours on the butterflies are beautiful. Great photos of the Mona and Black and White Colobus monkeys. :)

    Very interesting page and great photography! I have just returned from Ghana too, but didn't make it to the monkey sanctuary unfortunately.
